Choice Privileges members who make a reservation of two consecutive nights or more at participating hotels by Dec. 31, 2012 can receive a two-for-one companion airfare certificate. To be eligible, you must make a reservation using the Advance Purchase rate, which offers up to a 20 percent discount and cannot be cancelled, changed or refunded. Your credit card will be charged within 24 to 48 hours of booking and you will receive an activation code for the companion airfare within 48 hours of making your reservation. Visit http://www.ChoiceHotelsOffers.com/Airfare for more information and to make reservations. The offer is only available to Choice Privileges members. The companion airfare certificate will be offered through Promotions in Travel LTD and requires 14-day advance purchase. The companion certificate applies to the base fare only. Blackout days and additional restrictions may apply.
Bottom line: Keep in mind that the Advance Purchase rate required to be eligible for this promotion is nonrefundable. If you anticipate needing to change your reservation, you won’t be able to make changes. Also, the full terms and conditions to the companion certificate are only available on the registration form. In some cases, it may be cheaper to buy two discount tickets than use a free companion fare and purchase the other ticket. We wouldn’t recommend participating in this promotion just to receive the companion ticket, but if you have plans to stay at Choice this year, the two-for-one airfare may save you some money on a ticket. And here’s a reminder that through Aug. 15, Choice Privileges members who register at choicehotels.com can receive 8,000 points after two stays.
